Hi, I currently have a Corsair force 3 SSD with my OS Files/apps on it. I just receive my Vertex 3 I ordered. My question is, Will I have to format my current SSD? If so, how?
What other steps do I need to take to RAID 0 my SSD that already has my OS on it without reinstalling Windows 7? Thanks.

When you create a RAID-0 array it deletes all data on all drives that are part of the array.

You would either have to do a fresh Windows install (best method) or image your current system and then restore the image to your new array.

You probably won't notice any real-world difference with 2 drives in RAID-0.
Also note that RAID-0 has no fault tolerance. So if one of your drives die then you lose all of your data.

If you decide to create the array you don't have to format your current SSD.
Let Windows format the array automatically during installation.
